SAN FRANCISCO, April 7, 2008 Psychotherapist BobLivingstone writes about the benefits of exercise in his new book "The BodyMind Soul Solution: Healing Emotional Pain through Exercise" (Pegasus Books).He feels that the program in his book that combines exercise,self-questioning, journaling and listening to music is a healthy alternativeto medication.

There is increasing evidence that exercise is just as effective as or morebeneficial than medication for the depressed. One Duke University studytitled "Effects of exercise training on older patients with major depression"determined that exercise was just as effective as medication in reducing MajorDepressive Disorder in older patients without the adverse side effects of thedrugs.

Another Duke University study found that continued exercise greatlyreduces the possibility that depression will return, and a study that tookplace at The University of University of Texas Southwest Medical Center atDallas also indicates that exercise alone would greatly reduce the symptoms ofdepression.
